PT Trans Power Marine Tbk. (TPMA) targets revenue and net profit growth of up to 20% throughout 2024.

Trans Power Marine Corporate Secretary Rudy Sutiono said TPMA targets revenue and net profit to increase by around 10% to 20% throughout 2024. The target will be supported by the addition of several new fleets.

“The revenue and profit target increases by around 10-20%,” he told Bisnis, Saturday (1/13/2024).

In order to achieve this target, TPMA plans to add at least six new vessels, namely 2 tug boats and 4 barges measuring 330 feeds and 1 crane barge. However, Rudy has not been able to specify the capital expenditure that will be incurred to fund the purchase of new ships.

Meanwhile, as of September 2023, commodities fluctuate. TPMA posted revenue of USD 48.03 million or around IDR 743.87 billion (estimated exchange rate of IDR 15,487 per US dollar) as of September 2023, The operating revenue increased 5.27% compared to USD 45.62 million as of September 2022.
